The passing numbers didn’t look all that impressive for Kyler Murray on Monday Night Football this week as he led his Arizona Cardinals to a dominant 38-10 win over the Dallas Cowboys. But he sure was effective, wasn’t he? The former Heisman winner ended up with three total touchdowns (two passing and one rushing) as well as 188 yards via the air. And that was only one nine completions as well, believe it or not. 9-24 was his final passing line. He also added an additional 74 yards via the running game, on just ten attempts, showing just how strong he was. Of course, he got some help from running back Kenyan Drake as well.
Drake had 164 total yards, 69 of which came on one play, and two touchdowns as the Cardinals strolled to the victory. The Cowboys’ offense, led by Andy Dalton due to the long-term injury suffered by starter Dak Prescott, struggled by giving up four turnovers. Two of those were interceptions thrown by the ‘Red Rifle,’ ensuring that they dropped to 2-4 on the season. Even with that horrible record, they sit atop the NFC East as Philly as 1-4-1 and the woeful Giants and Washington Football Team are each 1-5. What a strange, strange season. The Cardinals are now 4-2, tied with the Rams in the NFC West on record for second. They trail the Seahawks, at 5-0, so it will take some doing to come out of that division this season.
